Wildlife Break Examples

Spring

Early mornings in spring can be fantastic for wildlife watching in our area; whether it is the courtship dance or lek of the Black Grouse accompanied by drumming Snipe, a woodland dawn chorus or roaming Red Deer, there is always plenty to see and hear. If we’re lucky and patient we may even get catch sight of the aerial courtship displays of Red Kite, Buzzard and even Golden Eagles as well as seeing and hearing our returning summer migrants such as Cuckoo, Wood Warbler and Redstart.

Bespoke Wildlife Walks & ToursA late afternoon-early evening trip to the river promises viewings of Dipper, Goosander and a possible glimpse of an elusive Kingfisher and we will also look out for signs of Beaver and Otter. Staying until dusk provides the chance of roding Woodcock and bats are almost guaranteed and we will have detectors at the ready to identify the species. If we’re really lucky, we may even see a furtive Otter or Beaver.

See below for a suggested itinerary for a split full day driven tour and what to bring along.
